Waco Downtown Farmers Market
Join Waco History on a family-friendly scavenger hunt! You’ll learn more about the founding and how Waco grew throughout the 19th century.
On August 29, 1856, the City of Waco was incorporated. In the 165 years since, the city has grown and developed through times of plenty and hardship.
Join Waco History on August 28th for a family-friendly scavenger hunt to trace Waco’s early years. Starting from the Waco Farmer’s Market at 500 Washington Ave anytime between 8:30 am and 10 a.m., individuals or teams will travel around Waco to learn about the city’s early history.
Download the free Waco History app to decipher each clue, follow the information to the historical locations, and complete interactive missions as you explore Waco’s founding in chronological order. To play, you’ll be asked to answer prompts via QR codes and upload pictures to the social media platform of your choice—either Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram—using the hashtag #WacoHistoryHunt.
At the end, three lucky teams will win prizes from local businesses for most points, most creative, and most historical insight. We’ll also be giving door prizes out throughout the event.
